"Mill Race Village celebrates the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg with their “Four Score and Seven” Independence Day celebration covering the 87 years between the American Revolution and the Civil War. Experience re-enactors from both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War periods, enjoy our new exhibit "Made in Northville' and celebrate our independence.

Vintage Baseball

This Thursday, the “vintage” baseball team, Northville Eclipse, plays against the Chelsea Monitors in a baseball game that would be more close to the way they played in the 1860s than today.

While the players are volunteers and the game itself is noncompetitive, it is according to the Northville Patch, “a tribute to the sport and similar to an American Civil War reenactment.”

The game is family friendly because there is no swearing, spitting, or sliding. They teams even leave the gloves at home.

All of us at the Jamey Kramer Group wish you a Happy 4th of July. We will post an article on the 4th if you are interested in any realtor tips, and we invite you to check it out.
